in Jaunty, I currently use the 180.44 drivers for my 9600 nVidia Gforce.  It 
also works fine with my 8400 nVidia Gforce on board.  Both are running great 
together.  When I installed them, in "Hardware Drivers" it was recommended as 
the appropriate driver for my system.  In application, it is the best video I 
have ever experienced, especially the 3D effects.

This is probably not too helpful, but what Jaunty recommends has been the best 
for my system since Intrepid.
